Jean-Francois Garry and his wife Martine run a traditional boatyard and chandlery in Fouras, France, through which they sell plans and kits for boats that are particularly popular with amateur boatbuilders.
'A good affordable introduction to the subject for amateur builders, students of boatbuilding and even model-makers. Well illustrated, and focusing on modern methods and techniques - unique among such books. Very attractive.' Pete Greenfield, Editor of Watercraft magazine 'The book is a pleasant read and...ideal for anyone thinking of carrying out a bit of restoration or amateur wooden boatbuilding.' Sailing Today (February 2011) 'A fantastic new book' Staines News (December 2010) 'This book takes a potentially daunting project and breaks it down into relatively bite-sized chunks so that you're able to enjoy the process of building your very first boat.' Furniture & Cabinetmaking (February 2011) 'a great little book...beautiful illustrations' Water Craft (March 2011)
